|Lure Coursing is a fast paced sport that allows our dogs to do what they do
best... run! All sight hound breeds, including Basenjis, can earn titles based
on their enthusiasm, speed and ability to follow.
In Africaan villages, Basenjis are still used today for hunting prey with tribes -
flushing and helping catch their prey on the run. Lure trials are a safe,
controlled way for our dogs to show us what they are built to do by simulating
the movement of prey by a remote control operated pulley system in an open
field. The hounds love it and it is amazing to watch them perform.
The American Kennel Club (AKC) sanctions lure coursing trials and tests for
dogs to earn various field championship titles. The American Sighthound
Field Association (ASFA), Large Gazehound Racing Association (LGRA) and
National Oval Track Racing Association (NOTRA) offer various titles as well.
In 2011 AKC started offering the Coursing Ability Test (CAT) whch is open to
dogs of every breed and mix. If you have a dog that loves to chase, check into
this great program! Fast CAT program is now available too!
For a brief description and short video of lure coursing, visit ASFA's site.
Beauty and Brawn!
